“Good food, the service may improve”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Ordered the rib eye with a glass of Malbec. The steak presentation was excellent and the complementary marrow was a great surpice. The temperature of the meat was perfect, medium rare; avoid the sauces, chimichurri is ok but expected a lot more from the chef's sauce. The location is ok, nothing fancy but well suited. The service may improve simply by acting as if they were in BLT Miami Beach instead of the Bull and Bear at the Waldorf.

“Lovely steak”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We were staying in the Betsy and on arrival were exhausted and didn't want to think about where to eat, so we ate in the restaurant in the hotel. The steak was lovely - it was massive and we shared one. The "bread" that was brought to the table, they called a popover. To us English - a Yorkshire pudding the difference being it contained cheese (very weird!!)
Serve was attentive, no complaints there.
There are tables inside, outside on the veranda and on the street. We stayed inside in the air conditioning but the veranda seats looked good too.
The prices though were very high. Although the food was good I did not feel it was worth what we paid for it ( one of the highest priced bills I've seen for 2 - and we didn't have wine) I have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants and paid less for awesome food.
If you don't mind the price though - well worth a visit.

“The best steak I’ve ever had.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

It’s not cheap but this a great steak house located in the Betsy hotel at the top of Ocean Drive.

Had some excellent oysters to start as well as some really tasty sides but the steak is the star as you would expect.

Great service too; if you’re looking for a great steak when you’re in Miami then look no further.

“Superb steak & excellent vantage point at the top of Ocean Drive”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

BLT Steak is located in funky boutique hotel, The Betsy, at the top of Ocean Drive. Reserve a table on the terrace (not on the street) to people watch throughout your meal.
The chicken liver pate, bread, pickles, and BLT's signature popovers (bit like Yorkshire puddings) were great to kick-off the meal.
I started with lobster salad followed-by a medium Wagyu skirt steak which was cooked perfectly and covered with a delicious herb butter.
Onion rings are a must they are gigantic, crispy, and served as a pyramid.
And the potato gratin was both creamy and crispy..
The consistency of the Keylime Panna Cotta was just perfect and rounded off the meal perfectly.
The waiters were efficient, polite and friendly throughout.
BLT was an excellent all round experience.
Highly recommended.

“Very good food, but you pay a lot for it”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

The seafood platter to start was as good as I have had anywhere and I love seafood.

We shared the Porterhouse Steak as a main, it was huge and delicious.
Plus made for a great lunch the following day in a baguette.

We had only just arrived so didn't have wine and the bill for two of us with the tip was $170.

The food was very good, the service was fine, and if you want to sit outside you can.

For me the food was good, but it wasn't up there with the best meals I've had, so not special enough for the money to be 5 stars. I do like nice restaurants and I don't mind paying for amazing food.
